About the Library

The Conrad N. Hilton Library at the Hyde Park, NY campus houses a cataloged collection of 60,000 print volumes, 900 DVDs, 200 periodical subscriptions, and more than 60 subject-specific research databases. While there is a strong specialization in the culinary field, the collection also includes a generous selection of liberal arts materials that support the college’s ever-expanding educational programs. Additionally, the Hilton Library is the site of the Archives and Special Collections which houses the CIA's collections of historical menus and rare books. Library staff members are available to help with research in person as well as by phone, text, e-mail, and online chat.

The Library Learning Commons, located within the library building, includes a variety of workspaces equipped with technology to support a diverse range of learning activities. Students have many opportunities to practice and enhance their academic and hands-on skills, as well as develop study strategies necessary for success.
